Its a nonsense. The next stage is likely the announcement of a preferred bidder. That isn't even an agreement to sell. The actual sales process will take weeks, even once its agreed. Its not like buying a fucking car. How long does it take to buy a house? Even once your offer is accepted and if there's no chain? And a shit hot solicitor? A month? This is a multi-billion dollar company. There'll be share and stock options to sort, employment contracts, transfer for of assets and liabilities, background checks on the new owner(s) (don't laugh). All fucking sorts. People think the announcement of a preferred bidding is tantamount to something binding. It isn't. It just means the next stage of negotiation is limited to one interested party.Bestie wrote: ↑6 months ago One other observation, i genuinely laughed out loud yesterday, with the reports earlier in the week saying that the sale of the club could go through tomorrow Friday.
With the fucking chuckle brothers that are Avram and Joel Glazer?? Bob Hope and fucking no hope, they are cretins.
They're delaying either due to:
1. Awaiting CL confirmation
2. Creating urgency/desperation for the buyer
Both of which are to drive a higher price.
And probably to get the games finished so there's less opportunity for protest.
